“LiveSpace Vietnam” to boost international exchange for young Vietnamese artists

Speaking at a press conference on January 12, Director of L’Espace Thierry Vergon expressed his hope that the LiveSpace Vietnam program, which will be held for the first time for Vietnamese artists, will, if successful, create opportunities to duplicate the project in Southeast Asia, thereby creating a playground for the award-winning artists of each country to exchange and share their passion for music.

He also said that when applying for the project, young artists and bands will have the opportunity to develop their expertise professionally, such as: performing on the professional stage of L’Espace, having their music products recorded, and participating in consulting workshops on performance expertise, composition, and recording technical standards for artists and live performance techniques for on stage.

In particular, young artists will also have a chance to sign an exclusive distribution contract for Fast Track and receive support from Believe, perform at Monsoon Music Festival 2021, and perform in many major cities across the country co-organised by L’Espace and Monsoon Music Festival, among others.

About 10-15 selected artists or groups will be introduced to the public through performances and through the votes of the audience the organising board will determine the final winners in October 2021.

 

The first concert of the upcoming series of LiveSpace Vietnam will take place at the stage of L’Espace at No. 24 Trang Tien Street, Hanoi, on January 16.

The event will gather together Limebócx, Chú Cá Lơ and Những Đứa Trẻ which promises to bring a colourful musical journey with multiple landscapes, ranging from rock to electro through the touches of traditional Vietnamese music.

Musician Quoc Trung, the founder of Monsoon Music Festival, also expressed his belief that the project will be successful and be held in a long term to develop professionalism as well as opening the door to international exchange for Vietnamese artists. Nhan Dan
